wright had with the president of the united states since he took the oath of office? >> you know, they haven't had any. president obama was clear that mr. wright's views didn't reflect the president's views. this required moral leadership on mitt romney's part to stand up to the extreme voices in his party. once again, he didn't rise to the occasion. one of the things he tried to do today is equate this hateful attack with a simple discussion of governor romney's economic record we had in this campaign. we've seen this from romney before. he didn't stand up to one of the symbolic heads of the republican party, rush limbaugh when he made those hateful comments against sandra fluke. we've been clear whether supporter of the president or person that used this rhetoric, and romney didn't stand up. >> he said he repudiated this style of campaign. do you believe him? >> he was asked later in the day about his comments earlier in the year about reverend wright you played not too long ago. he said he stood behind them. time and time again, he had the opportunity to stand up to the extreme voic

"i misspoke. i apologize. i have confidence in president obama's citizenship and legitimacy as president of the united states. i don't believe the president shares my belief in american exceptionalism." exceptionalism? don't you have to have the facts to be exceptional? or that's gone too? oh, he misspoke. how do you misspeak when you say, "i do know this -- he's not an american"? it sounds like coffman said exactly what he wanted to say. coffman laid low after releasing this statement. he just kind of wanted the whole thing to go away. but a reporter from denver's kusa television won't let the story die. >> the congressman is usually willing to talk about anything. he's been on 9 news 16 times in the past year, weighing in on everything from wildfires to memorial day celebrations. seems the only thing he didn't want to t
